ACT Virtual Meet Up 2021: Centering the Expertise of the Lived Experience
The integration of Peer Specialists on behavioral health care clinical teams have gained much momentum within the behavioral health workforce. The voices of Peer staff with lived experience provide clinicians, participants, and their natural supports with invaluable knowledge and insight to inform all aspects of care.
Lived experience is a unique discipline in the behavioral health care field and is now a recognized profession. It has its underlying philosophy and values distinct from other disciplines. Lived experience work is emancipatory, values-based, informed by and springing from a commitment to social justice, emphasizing the lived experience role as the change agent. It is by definition person-centered, viewing people as autonomous agents who, regardless of their particular circumstances or challenges, are the “experts” in terms of what is best for them. Lived experience roles provide a firsthand understanding and approach to surviving and thriving with mental health challenges.
At the ACT Institute, we advocate for the inclusion of lived experience roles as one of the multiple perspectives guiding all aspects of behavioral health.
The ACT Institute invites you to the annual ACT Meet Up taking place virtually on Thursday, October 14th and Thursday, October 21st, from 11 AM to 3 PM. Each day a different panel of experts with lived experience will present their work as Peer Specialists in social services, including youth, adult, policy-making, and administrative settings.
